No ADF

A pity there is no automatic document feeder, essential for an all-in-one office printer.

Will it work as a scanner when the ink runs out?

just asking - I bought a pixma mp610 some time ago on the basis of the glowing A-list review and it wasn't mentioned that the thing would not function as a scanner once any of the cartridges runs out.

I'd like to ask where the Canon MG 5350 printer is manufactured and whether any of its parts orginate from Fukushima or nearby towns in Japan?. Does anyone know please ?

The review is dated today, the comments from a month ago and last year. D'ya have a time machine David or are this trío claírvoyant?

@deadtroopers
The review is from 29 August 2011. Something funny's going on with dates on reviews today - we're looking into it!

Up to date reviews?

This MG5350 looks like what I need, but so do the Ip4500 and the MP610 only both of these were tested in 2008, what the customer needs to know is, will these older printers work with Win7 and above?
Another big point which the customer needs to know is does the printer waste ink by cleaning every time it is used? My Epson DX4850 only prints 26 A4 letters before its out of ink (all four cartridges)due to the cleaning process which is more wasteful since adding a new driver to make it work with Win7

RE: Up to date reviews?

I agree. Came here exactly to investigate the the use of ink in the MG5350, but gets nothing but nice words about the shiny pics it can produce. Please wake all, this is a toll we have to handle too...Sad
